Member Stories

I am a drastically better professional due to the many resources available through the NACAC network. I cannot do my work without NACAC.

Yetunde Rubinstein

Associate Director of College Counseling, Brentwood School (CA)

NACAC has been integral in providing me opportunities to network with colleagues from both sides of the desk, both informally and formally. It is so important to foster professional relationships because we are all in this profession together for our students. I am grateful for mentors I’ve met at conferences and workshops who have helped me succeed in this industry, and it has been an honor to present and collaborate with them in addressing regional and national issues that affect many of us collectively.

Grace Cheng
